February 6th is Digital Learning Day (http://www.digitallearningday.org/). This is a great day to sit down with your student and surf the net. As you browse the net consider signing up for a Pininterest account with your student. Pininterest (http://pinterest.com/) is an online scrapbook. As you browse through the web you can use the service's "pinning" feature to save sites or images to a "board". Each member of the family can have their own board under your account. By keeping all boards under one account you can safely allow your student the opportunity to collect clippings from things that interest them and you may get to know your student a little bit better in the process. See you in Cyberspace!
